Did You Know?

Did you know that in rilievo means in relief (French "en dehors", meaning outwards); indicates that a particular instrument or part is to play louder than the others so as to stand out over the ensemble; in the circle of Arnold Schoenberg, this expression had been replaced by the letter "H" (for German, "Hauptstimme"), with an added horizontal line at the letter's top, pointing to the right, the end of this passage to be marked by the symbol " ┐ "?
